with the growing threat from the neighboring syria. 400 troops will join nato forces and stand ready to act if syria intends to unleash chemical weapons. fox's leland vittert is in our middle east bureau. leland, just a few days ago the head of nato said the assad regime is about to collapse. why deploy these troops now? >> reporter: it really has to do with showing solidarity with the turks who are clearly very scared and timing comes a couple days after we learned that the syrians were mixing chemical weapons to possibly use. so this is the united states and nato's way of really get being behind turkey, a close ally saying we support you. the secretary of defense was quick to point out that the patriot missiles are just that, defensive weapons that will be put down along the syrian border to protect syria, protect turkey from attacks by syrian jets or scud missiles that would fly in but that is not exactly the whole story. the patriots could be easily programmed and put in a no-fly zone over northern syria. so far turkey is denying that as is nato saying this is purely defensive move by t

. >> one of the big challenges for the next secretary of state will be syria and our own mccormick spoke with secretary panetta and learned he is sending two missile batteries to turkey including 400 members of the u.s. military to help. does that signal a greater u.s. military involvement? >> what it signals is turkey is a member of nato. i have just come from turturkey. it has very serious issues with the number of refugees coming in. as a nato member we are really have to and want to and are committed to defending turkey so i think it is a 98nato issue and shows a sign we do not want the problems in syria to spread outside the borders. >> if in fact they begin to move chemical weapons, what should the united states and turkey and other country do so? >> people are very concerned about the use of the chemical weapons and also lack of control over them. and i think that there again, there will be -- president obama has made very clear that that is a line. and i think that there probably will be nato looking at it in a variety of -- >> looking at it meaning? >> more d

interventionist like susan rice is. >> no. >> if you want to harm rebels in libya or syria, susan rice. >> since you've been covering this so closely, take us through the evolution because president obama and the white house were so defiant. and remember that one press conference where he came out very sternly talking about how much he admired ambassador rice. how did we get to yesterday? was this all from susan rice, or was there a little nudge from the white house as well? >> well, it's unclear as to whether there was a nudge, but certainly she was reading the tea leaves. and it was pretty clear for the last two weeks that the president was not as forceful as he was on that day, november 14th. when john mccain had said very bluntly on the hill, she is not going to get confirmed, and the president then had his first news conference after being re-elected and just came out so strongly, dramatically and emphatically, he was angry, and they're still angry in the white house about the way mccain and company, they think ganged up on her. i was also told that he might not have stuck with her as long
